The reason why I say, “it depends” is because different food energies act upon the human body in different ways.
TCM often distinguishes the human body into “cold” or “hot” types.
You might wonder: Is an apple a day good?
Or are bananas better than apples?
But, there are no absolute answers to such questions.
It is better to ask:
Is an apple a day good for me?
Which is better for me, peaches or bananas?
Those questions can be answered correctly.
The “Thermo-Properties of Foods” chart (see below) shows that different foods generate sensations either “hot” or “cold” in the human body.
We can use this chart to help maintain Yin-Yang harmony (homeostasis).
Please feel free to ask me about the “Thermo-Properties of Foods” and which foods are best for you! (see chart below)
